Computer Technology – Is it Good Or Bad?

The 21st century has been the age of so many technological breakthroughs and advances, technologies aimed for one purpose and that is to make the lives of people better by helping them become more efficient in their work. One such technological breakthrough is computer technology.

Computer technology has grown in great proportions starting from a computer with a size that of a room to a small well-designed palm top computer. Computers nowadays have become an indispensable part of the lives of people, especially at work, at companies, businesses, schools, offices and even in homes.

It has made the world smaller, but has it made our world better? It would then lead us to ask whether computer technology is good or bad. Now let us try to look at first some of the bad effects. With the advent of computers and with the internet it has become easy to access pornographic sites, children are more exposed to explicit content; some students would lose focus on their studies as they play computer games. The number of obesity cases has increased and it has been attributed to too much computer activity that led to less physical activity among a number of people.

On the other side of the coin, computers have opened a whole new world of possibilities. It is now easier to gain information on world events; you can even find a job in the internet; you can spread advocacies to a vast number of people all over the world; and most importantly it is now easier to be connected with one another even if you are on the other side of the globe.

Computer technology, just like any other material on earth has been created with a common good in mind. Just like a knife, it has been made to cut and slice food to speed up cooking time for people but it can also be used to kill people, and you cannot ban the use of knives in order to stop killing. And so you can’t blame computers for the problems it may have caused for it is the people who use them who caused the problem. It has disadvantages and advantages that must be taken into consideration.

But the problem is not computer technology itself; the problem resides on the people who use it. Computer technology is generally good for it can bring in a lot of good if it is used properly, but can do great harm if used unwisely.

People have choices on how they make use of earth’s resources, and that choice will determine how certain materials will affect people, be it good or bad.

    Looking back over the last two weeks, I feel like my family and Jesus have gotten the leftovers. Lately, it’s felt like I’ve been living the tyranny of the urgent–urgent not necessarily meaning important.What really matters TODAY? That’s what I asked myself this morning–our family night tonight, and my devotional time with my Savior, and a few quiet moments with my husband, and right now…snuggle time with my kiddo-going to snuggle now!Good question/discussion..-= Tina Dee´s last blog .. =-.

    Yes, Heidi, try-outs are coming up! 🙂 I so appreciate your offer and will take you up on that one day. Not all employers are flexible unfortunately (remember, even with mine — who is great with my situation — I had to push for the ability to take sick leave to care for Robert since sibling care isn't covered under FMLA). Happy to have you back!

    It should read “…Him in heaven”.*Protestantism leads to atheism or somewhere away from God because you either are with Him or against Him.*Can anyone recall who said, paraphrasing here, destroy the Catholic Church and all the protestant denominations will crumble with Her?

    We wish to thank you again for the gorgeous ideas you offered Jesse when preparing her post-graduate research and, most importantly, with regard to providing each of the ideas in one blog post. Provided that we had been aware of your web-site a year ago, we’d have been kept from the needless measures we were taking. Thank you very much.

    I discovered you on IPTV and have been following your website and show and have made a few of your items! This is fabulous! I have been looking for something like this for my 72 year old mother who lost something similiar 2 years ago. Who would’ve thought it could have been made from a re-purposed sweater! Oh please pick me, if not for my joy but for the joy of my mom.

    This is a wonderful essay. Your words are encouraging yet realistic. Living low sodium is a challenge and sometimes you can get tired of the constant battle. It’s so easy to give into temptation (and to deny that we’re tempted is foolishness). The encouragement we receive from each other is vitally important. Thank you for this post. We all need to hear these words from time to time.
